Last year something ate my climbing rose bush.  I did spray it a couple times this year and am excited to see it growing now!

Have been harvesting sugar peas from the garden!

The scarlet runner bean is climbing the pergola.  Coco kept pulling the leaves off them so I set some pots around it to keep her from eating it.

Potted up a couple more plants! 

The lavendar is doing the best ever this year!

One section of the garden!

Another section!

And another section!

This use to be the compost bin!

Lettuces and spinach planted here!

A section of the flower bed.

Another view of the flower bed!

Carrots in the boxes are flourishing!

Coco, flowers and veggies

I think the clematis is so pretty this year but towards the top there are no flowers.  Why is that?

Color in the flower bed looking good!

I have picked lavendar a couple of times and will probably pick more if I have the time!

Scarlet Runner Beans doing well!

Oh, oh!  See the leaves on the deck?  Some critter got into my scarlet runner beans!

I believe this critter is guilty!!  I think the leaf stuck to her ear is enough evidence!!

I have stopped cutting asparagus to eat but have eaten a couple sugar peas from the garden.  Yum!  Thank you for visiting!  Happy Gardening!

Busy Gardening!

This is the time of year that gardeners are super busy!  The chives were so pretty and I am making chive blossom vinegar.

I think this is some kind of sage.  It is huge and so pretty this year.  I don't know how I manage to do it but it seems I get my taller plants at the front and the shorter ones in the middle.  Woe is me!

The spinach is really producing.  Not sure how long it will last with this hot weather we have been having.

I planted a couple pots of Scarlet Runner Beans.  Thought maybe they would look pretty climbing the lattice of the pergola.  That is if Coco doesn't eat the plants!

I think the flower garden looks prettier than this picture with all the color there is starting to show now.  The yarrow is just starting to bloom yellow and with all the lavendar color I have it makes a nice contrast.

The beans are growing well.  Now if the bunnies, Coco and beatles don't eat them I may get to harvest some!

I should be able to harvest some sugar peas from here before too much longer.  My asparagus is about done so will look forward to these!

The lettuce, spinach, and radish bed looks so pretty with the different colors.

I started drying my thyme today.  I plan to do more after this amount is dried.  That's it for this time.  Thank you for visiting and have a nice week-end!   

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
